Cloak is a service for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad that keeps you safe when you're connected to public wireless networks like those found at coffee shops, hotels, airports, and conferences.

Note: You must first sign up to use Cloak. Cloak offers a 30-day free trial, and plans start at $2.99 per month after that. See the plans and pricing page for full details.

Exactly how unsafe are public hotspots? Here's a recent CBC report about Firesheep, a hacking tool that makes it shockingly easy to steal your stuff.

THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING APP.
IT'S EASY TO USE AND IT DOESN'T SLOW DOWN YOUR CONNECTIONS.
IT MAKES ME FEEL SAFE USING NETWORKS.
IT'S SIMPLY GREAT.

Working very well for me. Just been on a two month global trip and did not have to worry about e-banking from cafes etc as my connection was secured all the time without any thought on my part. Definitely 5 stars in my book.

A few glitches due to flaky connections but developers very responsive.

Need a discounted annual payment plan though

Just a head's up, not really "free". Pro Plan is $14.99/month or the Basic Plan is $7.99/month.

Indeed. I just got their email: the free beta is over, now you have to pay to use it (there's only a free 30-day trial).

While the iOS version of Cloak works great on my iPod Touch, the desktop version never manages to login successfully.

I have no issues under 10.6.8 Note also, new version available is 0.9.23 I also use Witopia, which I probably prefer - but Cloak works fine for me.
